  • Eagle Forum Files Brief in U.S. Supreme Court in United States v. Dr. Sell.
    On Oct. 7, 2002, Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund filed an amicus curiae brief before the U.S. Supreme Court in United States v. Dr. Sell. We support Dr. Sell's petition for certiorari to overturn a divided Court of Appeals decision. Dr. Sell has been held in jail for nearly five (5) years without a trial, as the federal government attempts to forcibly inject him with mind-altering drugs. The government claims this is necessary to render the non-violent Dr. Sell mentally fit for trial, but he has already served more time in jail than the maximum sentence for the underlying crime.

  • What can you do about the strange case of Dr. Sell?
    A Missouri dentist, Dr. Sell, was arrested 8 years ago on charges of overbilling in his dental practice, and has been held in prison without a trial ever since because of claims that he has "paranoid delusions of the persecutory type". He denies the charges and wants a trial. The government tried to forcibly medicate him with mind-altering drugs until the Supreme Court intervened last year. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently reported that there are unreleased videotapes that document prison abuse of Dr. Sell.
